The Island of Giant Insects Video Anime Unveils Main Cast

posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda

The official website for the anime of Yasutaka Fujimi, RED ICE and Shu Hirose's The Island of Giant Insects (Kyochū Rettō) manga revealed the anime's cast on Friday.

The anime stars:

The anime will ship on DVD in a limited-edition bundle with the manga's sixth compiled book volume on June 20.

The survival horror story begins when Mutsumi Oribe and her classmates are flying for a school field trip, and their plane crashes. They drift onto an island dominated by giant insects. The tagline for the anime is, "On that island … humans are merely insect fodder."

Takeo Takahashi (Spice and Wolf, Aki Sora) is serving as chief director of the anime at Passione, and Shigeru Morita (Arpeggio of Blue Steel - Ars Nova) wrote the script. Takayuki Noguchi (Queen's Blade: Rebellion) is designing the characters.

Yasutaka Fujimi and artist group RED ICE launched the manga on Akita Shoten's Champion Cross website in 2014 before moving it to Akita Shoten's free manga website Manga Cross. Shu Hirose (artist for El Cazador de la Bruja, Sōkō Akki Muramasa: Minagoroshi manga) took over the art for the manga on December 27 due to RED ICE group's poor health.
